Hello my brother, good to see you again
It’s been far too long since we’ve shared a pint my friend
We got stuck in our lives, seems you’ve done well I must commend
But damn it’s good to see you again

Hello my sister, you look lovely my dear
The years have been kind and life’s left you satisfied it would appear
I remember the time our eyes were so full of fear
But truly you’re looking so lovely I mean it sincere

Every once in a while the stars seem to align
Found in a smile is life’s complicated design
I know you’d stay through the darkest part of night
Would you still be here in the morning light?

Hello my father, would you please take my hand
My castles have crumbled. I built them all upon the sand
I got lost for a while, I realize it’s not what we planned
But I promise I’ll be on the right path soon again

Hello my mother, take me into your arms
These kings that rule aren’t fooled by meek boyish charms
As I stand at the gates and the sentry sound the alarm
I realized I arrived so unarmed

Every once in a while the righteous see the wrong
And they tell me it’s darkest always just before the dawn
I know you’d stay through the darkest part of night
Would you still be here in the morning light?

Hello my lover, now its just you and I
And this infinite world can be ours if we just stay allied
These castles and kingdoms are none but ours to decide
As long you’ll be here in the morning light
I’m hoping you’ll still be here in the morning light
